TRAVEL: a waltz through vienna - InterContinental Insider Experience Vienna | Bikinis & Passports

I am not one to shy away from telling others how much I love my beautiful hometown Vienna. It seems that the longer I live here, the more the love grows.

Ohh, where to begin? How do you write about a place that is simply too beautiful for words? Without a doubt this is the hardest hotel review I’ve ever done. Not because the hotel wasn’t everything we wished for and more, but quite frankly because I don’t think words could do the experience we’ve had at the Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa justice. I’ve sat here, staring at all the photos from our vacation last week for hours and I don’t really know where to start….
